Orange, Calif. - Former Philips Consumer Electronics veteran Cliff York was named
senior sales VP, the company announced Monday.
York's promotion was joined by those of Eric Nissen, who becomes national accounts senior director, and Helman Lukito, who was named channel marketing director.
"Even during these challenging economic times, Westinghouse Digital has continued to grow," Douglas Woo, Westinghouse Digital president, said in a statement.
